Hello, everyone.
And welcome to English with Lucy.
Today I've got a grammar lesson for you.
A lot of you have asked for this one because
I did mention going into further detail about this topic
in the previous video.
If you want to watch that one,
then you can click right here.
Today we're going to be talking about question tags.
If you learn how to appropriately
understand and use question tags,
You're going to...you're going to
a) sound more like a native speaker when you speak,
and b) be able to understand native speaker when they speak to you.
So it's really really important thing to learn.
So this lesson is going to help you
with your English grammar and your English speaking,
and your listening as well really.
But if you want to take your English to the next level,
then I cannot recommend italki enough.
I've been working with italki for over a year now.
And so many of my students have had such fantastic results.
It's an online language learning platform.
You can learn basically every language there is,
but you'll hate to learn English,
so imagine that's what you want to learn.
And italki has thousands of native teachers at incredible prices,
and they can help you become more fluent, more quickly.
You can book yourself in for a conversation lesson,
or a plan lesson any time of the day
with native teachers, non-native teachers, whatever you want.
And italki has very kindly given me an offer to give to you,
which is ten dollars worth italki credits
when you make your first ten-dollar purchase.
So it's like buy-one-get-one-free lessons.
All you have to to is click on the link below,
make your first purchase.
And then within 48 hours,
the credits will appear in your account.
Happy talking!
Right. Let's get started with the lesson.
So what are question tags?
Oh, that was one there.
So a question tag is a very short question
placed at the end of a statement.
They are used when asking for two things.
And these two things are
1) confirmation
and 2) agreement.
So in order to better understand native speakers,
you need to listen to their intonation
when they use question tags.
So let's cover this first
and then move on to how they're formed.
So let's do this one.
It means, I know you like cake,
I'm just trying to confirm the fact that you like cake.
I'm not sure if you like cake.
I'm not sure about what the answer will be,
so I'm checking the fact again.
I want to know the answer I'm not sure.
I'm making conversation,
I'm confirming something that I've already known.
See the difference?
So it's somthing that's really really simple,
but I still have a lot of students that get really really confused with question tags.
So let's clarify this now.
Now, so those are the negative ones.
There are just a couple of exceptions.
The first exception is with "am".
which you can say,
but it sounds very very formal.
Now statements using
are all treated as negative statements.
So at first glance,
it might look like a positive statement,
and a positive question tag.
But you need to make sure
that you see the negative word before it.
OK, guys. Your homework today is
to write in the comments three statements with question tags.
Using what we've learnt today,
and I want you to make me laugh.
I want you to make them as funny as possible.
So see if you can do that.
